    Probably the only guy in the world who's physique has gotten worse from losing fat

    A while ago I decided to finally cut for the first time since I started lifting. My body fat was uncomfortably high -- my butt was getting really large, in particular -- so I figured it was time. I was NOT expecting how little fat had been stored in my glutes relative to the rest of my body. I mean, they barely ****ing shrank. Now I'm stuck with an ass that sticks out like crazy and makes my physique look more disproportionate than before.

    RIP

    Thing is, I do too. I'm genuinely proud of how far I've come, and my upper body has come a long way - even though it's still a ways away from some of you guys. From the front I think I look pretty good! But then there's the side view,





    which I feel just ruins the balance of my physique. Obviously it's tough to objectively judge how big it is, but it's gotten bigger than anyone else I know. I'm sure I'm dramatizing, of course, and a lot of this is in my head, but still... the fact that it won't stop growing doesn't help, either

    Just build up the rest of your body to match... all there is to it!

    Ask the ladies, doesn't matter what we think (unless we're your target audience).

    And be thankful you don't have flat butt genetics like a lot of us.

    It probably will shrink if you continue losing fat. Most guys have trouble losing the fat on their stomachs - but this is not the case with everyone. I knew a guy once who had ab definition - but when he was eating too much, he didn't lose his abs, just got a fat ass...

    I mean, maybe it'll shrink a little bit more, but somehow I doubt it. It feels far too firm to be made up of fat in any substantial way. I suppose atrophy is an option too, though that feels drastic.

    You can get away with a surprising amount of fat without it being wobbly or saggy when there is muscle there too. Think about girls with great asses (I do this a lot) - they don't have bigger glute muscles than men.

    I don't think you should ever consider actively atrophying a muscle...
